Re: “Rah, Rah, RAW

Thank you again, Bill, for the awesome article! It's about time we had a comprehensive story covering raw food - both affirmative and negative opinions.

While raw food is the way it originally came packaged, the human body has, through so many generations of digressing from the original lifesource, changed and "evolved" (as some would put it) so that a raw diet may not work for everyone. This depends mainly on genes; not just your more recent ancestors, but what kind of culture THEY originally came from, what their region ate - if your ancient ancestors ate a lot of cooked food, that would have started the change in physiology that far back. Consequently, if they ate mostly raw, pickled, and sun-dried foods, your ancestors would not have the same digestive system as those of the cooked-food consumers. I am lucky enough to have come from an Italian family... And while we are now known for our pasta and sauce (as well as meatballs I suppose), we are also known for salads, fresh fruit, sun-dried tomatoes, and a number of pickled things.

I'm just so glad you took the time to write an article to educate the masses - not many people have heard a great deal about raw food, and when they do it's usually the raw eggs and meat approach.

Although, when I interviewed, I did not realize it would be the cover story!
